Presented by MPavilion

Sorry you missed this one!
Free entry Sat 14 Mar, 1pm–3pm
Queen Victoria Gardens, St Kilda Rd,

This writing workshop explores a range of creative techniques for engaging with structures, and in considering ways in which wordplay can expand our relationships with architecture. Participants are introduced to a number of creative strategies to expand architectural and literary practice, looking both at the history of imaginative responses to architecture and at participants’ own ideas and experiments.

It will consider writing about emotion through buildings, collaborating with physical structures on writing projects and using literary techniques to resist power dynamics manifested in the built environment along with experimental writing as a collaborative practice in which particular spaces, the passage of time and the thought, action or presence of other people, animals, objects or spirits can reconfigure and challenge authorship.

This event is hosted at MPavilion, an ongoing initiative of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation and is supported by City of Melbourne, State Government of Victoria through Creative Victoria and Development Victoria, and ANZ.
